9/15-16/2006 - Where in the world is J. G. Fellow?
Avid readers of my blog are probably aware that I am way behind in my posting of cities (moreso than the near 1-month lag in blog dates suggests). As a result, said avid readers may be curious as to where I "really" am. I am happy to report that I have arrived at Mount Rushmore and am knocking at the gates of Wyoming. A quick glance at the map on my wall shows me that I have traversed more than half of the continental U.S. in the past 11 months. I've walked more than 4.5M steps, more than 2,300 miles, but I have plenty of work ahead of me.
I have more than three million more steps to take here in the U.S. before I cross back into Canada (British Columbia). Once there I get 1.2 million steps good behavior before I find myself in a veritable zone of non-humanity. Another 2.6 million steps will take me to the first of my national wildlife preserves (Kluane). And then I will get to indulge in 2 million steps of reserved wildlife before turning myself in at Anchorage.
But enough about the future. Whilst I dawdle beneath the chiseled features of men whom I admire, I get to consider one of my favorite subjects -- Presidents. I'll write more about this once I actually get to the point where I am posting South Dakota, but for the mean time, let me ask you, dear readers:
- Who was your favorite President?
- Who was your second least favorite President (after Bush or Clinton, depending on the color of your state...)
- What drew you towards or away?
24,000 contemplative steps over these 2 days. Cheers,
